Been helping these robins since the eggs were 1st laid. Built a nest on top of one of the railcar unloader sections and I have been moving this thing around as I empty cars. I make sure to always put the nest back in the same area once a new car is put in place and the old one removed. So far mama robin keeps going back so long as I keep it within 10' or so of her original spot. As babies they really are pretty freakin hideous.

Had no choice but to try and see if there would be an issue, otherwise once I got the car emptied it would have been taken away and no way is the mother going with the train.

That was nice of you and amazing that the mother didn't abandon the nest. Most will do that if the nest is touched. I was taking out a sticker bush years ago and I came across a robin's nest, which I moved to another bush maybe 6 feet away. She wasn't able to find it.

Then for 3 years straight, a robin built one next to my garage in a ornamental pine about 5 feet off the ground. The first year, 2 or the 3 eggs hatched and the baby birds flew off. The second year, same exact spot, but something got into the nest and 2 of the 4 eggs were knocked to the ground and the mother never came back. The last year, 4 eggs again and she abandoned them. I still have a couple of the nests in my garage. They always build a new one every year.

All 3 babies appear to be doing well and I would expect they will soon leave the nest.
